Synopsis for pascagoula to atchafalaya river out 60 nm -
southerly return flow will persist over the area through the week with high pressure anchored to our east. The pressure gradient between this high and a storm system over the great plains will gradually tighten during the time, resulting in an increase in winds and building seas.

New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Monday night)
Issued at 356 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

High pressure remains anchored near Bermuda. Southerly return flow around the high has yielded a notable increase in humidity with dewpoints around 10-15F higher than this time yesterday.
The breezy southerly winds of 10-15 mph this afternoon will gradually weaken as daytime mixing wanes after sunset.
Temperatures will drop quickly this evening once this occurs.
There is a potential for radiational fog to develop toward daybreak across inland areas of southern MS (north of I-12) and the SE LA (north of I-12). There is a concern for the fog to become dense across these northern and eastern areas, but there may be enough of a pressure gradient to prevent winds from decoupling across the region, except for the most sheltered locales. This may limit coverage/density of fog.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday through Saturday night)
Issued at 356 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

The region will be situated in fast zonal flow in between a ridge over the SW Gulf of Mexico and longwave trough over the northern CONUS. At the surface, high pressure will remain anchored over the southwestern Atlantic. A gradual increase in temperatures and humidity is forecast to continue through much of the work week owing the persistent southerly return flow around the high. There wasn't much of a need to stray away from the NBM forecast with such low spread in the NBM ensembles through Friday. However, a target of opportunity was identified for Thursday and Friday with the potential to see our first 90F day of the year. Kept temperatures just below the NBM forecast by blending it with the 25th percentile due to the potential for cloud cover. Mid and high clouds look likely with several shortwave disturbances that are embedded within the fast zonal flow aloft moving across the area.

The next precipitation chances look to be this weekend. Models have trended slower with the system next weekend so the better chance for showers and storms appear to be Sunday instead of Saturday.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 633 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Primary concern continues to be the prospect of IFR or lower ceilings and visibilities developing as strong radiational cooling allows for a decent inversion to form after 10z. MVFR visibilities and IFR ceilings as low as 300 feet could develop at MCB around 10z and continue through 13z before improving where the low level inversion is expected to be strongest. BTR, HDC, and ASD may also see MVFR ceilings between 1500 and 2500 feet develop for a brief window around 12z tomorrow morning. Outside of this fog and low ceiling threat between 10z and 13z, VFR conditions will prevail at all of the terminals.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1257 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

VFR this afternoon with a S wind 8-12 kt, gusting to just under 20 kt. The south wind will weaken within a few hours following sunset and generally remain between 4-8 kt through much of the night. However, stronger radiational cooling across the inland/northern terminals (e.g., MCB, HDC, BTR) may decouple winds at the surface and yield patchy fog toward daybreak Monday morning. Restrictions would likely be MVFR but cannot rule out a brief 1-2 hour period of IFR, especially at MCB, at or just before 12Z. VFR and S winds 5-10 kt can be expected on Monday.

Outlook (Monday night-Wednesday night)...Forecast model soundings show a gradual increase in low level through the week owing to the persistent southerly flow around high pressure that is anchored to our east. While conditions look to many be VFR, the potential for MVFR CIGs , including stratus overnight and stratocu during the morning, increase each day.

MARINE
Issued at 356 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

High pressure will remain anchored to our east. This setup will produce an extended period of southerly return flow through the end of the week. The pressure gradient is expected to strengthen on Tuesday. The latest guidance highlights two separate areas for the potential of small craft advisory conditions on Tuesday. The first area is across the outer coastal waters where the NBM probabilities of 20 kt or higher sustained winds peak in the 50-70 percent range. The second area is the lakes where probabilities peak to 100 percent during the afternoon and evening.
